Mockups template for Mac apps

Is there anything for desktop apps similar to Mock Apps for iPhone?  Basically a template formatted for Mac style desktop apps that allows you to design an app layout.

I'm familiar with Xcode.  I'm not wanting to write an app.  I'm wanting to mock it up very quickly and export the finished product to PDF.  Xcode doesn't do any of that.

You could use a Graphical App such as OmniGraffle to mock up GUI elements - http://www.omnigroup.com/products/omnigraffle/ or Inkscape -http://inkscape.org/ both have templates/libraries of OSX GUI elements which you can use to build interface mock-ups.

If you want to produce mock-ups with some interactivity then you could try
Axure - http://www.axure.com/
ForeUI - http://www.foreui.com/

There are lots of iPhone / iPad mockup tools out there from applications to web-based tools

I do this all the time with Omnigraffle. If you look at graffletopia.com you can find thousands of pre-drawn templates to use in Omnigraffle.
